The Simple Monitor Desktop

Flickr user d.chasenelson‘s desktop is simple, only has a few widgets, and a simple gradient wallpaper that’s not at all distracting. It’s ideal for a second screen when you’re working in the first, or just as a quick monitor view you can minimise other things to check out. Here’s how to set it up.


The Mirrored Colour Dual-Monitor Desktop

We don’t highlight dual display desktops nearly as often as I’d like, so when orbmeiser submitted this dual monitor setup, I took notice. He’s running Netrunner Linux on dual displays, and here’s what he used to set everything up.


The Buncho Desktop

Our friend and frequent featured desktop contributor Dobbie03 has switched from Windows back to Linux, and with gusto — his new Arch Linux desktop looks sharp. It’s well-customised to fit his workflow, and we love Java Sparrows (aka bunchos.) Here’s how he set it all up.


The Tropical Desktop

This desktop, sent in by reader Amy, brings a little summertime to our screens, which we can always appreciate. Best of all, it’s pretty streamlined and doesn’t require a ton of tweaking to get just right. If you want the same look, here’s how Amy did it.


The Pale Mountain Desktop

It’s been a while since we featured a desktop from our friend Joergermeister, and this Windows setup takes the cake. It’s clean, well organised, doesn’t overdo the widgets, and just looks good. Here’s how he made it.


The Dark Planet Desktop

Reader tatersneggs put together this Rainmeter-powered desktop that’s flashy enough, but actually doesn’t use a lot of widgets to get a neat, personal look. Here’s how he set it up.


The NXT Nebula Desktop

Reader ravenclawwit stumbled on the NXT theme for Rainmeter, and put it to great use in this beautiful, functional desktop. That circle in the upper left? It’s actually a dock, packed with shortcuts. Here’s how it all works, and how to set it up.


The Sunset Firewatch Desktop

We’ve featured a Firewatch Desktop before, but now that the game is out, we’re seeing more than a few — and who can blame you, the game’s atmosphere is a huge draw, and the landscapes are gorgeous. Reader jadita put this one together.


The Glacier Point Desktop

Stranha didn’t leave a lot of information about how he made this beautiful desktop, featuring Glacier Point in the center, but we can figure it out. Here’s what you’ll need if you want to make your Mac look and feel like this.


The Crashing Waves Desktop

Sebastian’s desktop embodies building order out of just a little chaos, and we can totally see that. We also just love the wallpaper, and the smart use of widgets for his desktop. Here’s how he set it all up.
